Mississippi Seeing Low-Key Congressional Campaigns

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi's U.S. House races are low-key, with all four incumbents enjoying comfortable fundraising leads over their Nov. 8 challengers.

In the northern 1st District, Republican Rep. Trent Kelly is seeking a full two-year term. He won a special election in June 2014 after the death of Republican Rep. Alan Nunnelee. Kelly faces three challengers.

In the 2nd District, which encompasses the Delta and Jackson, Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson seeks to hold the seat he first won in 1993. He faces three challengers.

Republican Rep. Gregg Harper seeks a fifth term in the central 3rd District. He faces three challengers.

Mark Gladney, the Democratic challenger in the southern 4th District, has been making campaign appearances but has been largely ignored by third-term Republican Rep. Steven Palazzo. Two others are running.
